Houses of the Century

Product : Houses of the Century
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A superb selection of 25 houses designed and built between the early 1900s and the late 1980s by 25 architects who are ranked as the greatest of our time. Alvar Aalto, Luis Barragan, Antonio Gaudi, Steven Holl, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Mies van der Rohe, Glenn Murcutt, and Frank Lloyd Wright just to mention a few. In essence, Houses of the Century is an architectural journey through the 1900s, a detailed guide of the most influential residential structures of the era. From the early, highly ornamented style of Gaudi to Ando's simplified approach, no stone is left unturned in tracing the evolution of the contemporary dwelling to its purest form. Whether it is Rem Koolhaas decon-structing, or Frank Gehry recycling, or Barragan coloring, the domestic architecture of the 20th Century is distinctive and prolific, at the peak of its art form.

Product : Facade: In Every Mortal Lies a Dormant God!
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In his second poetry collection, "Facade...In Every Mortal Lies a Dormant god , " Sanford Shuman continues his serious exploration of life. This poetry should elevate your consciousness and inspire you to live the extraordinary existence that GOD ordained for you in the very beginning of your life.Shuman remembers that there was an era when it was against the law for some ethnic groups to read or even show the slightest interest in knowledge or becoming educated. But he reminds us that the old saying, "Knowledge is Power," is so very true. This collection is divided into four chapters: Passion and Emotions; Notions and Motivations; Divine and Frame of Mind; and Rebellion and Unrest "Facade" offers poems for any occasion for those seeking insight and knowledge."NobilityTwo wrongs don't make a right, That's like confusing day for night.The good will always get ahead, To promote iniquity is something one should dread.Victory has a great cost, But, if one gives up all hope is lost.In this life, some things, one is sure to lose, But, you can gain much more if you choose.Troubles are suppose to only make, To think you'll have enduring success without a battle is a mistake."

Passion: Pass It on

Product : Passion: Pass It on
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Passion is what energises life. Passion makes the impossible possible. Passion gives you a reason to get up in the morning with the conviction that 'Today I am going to do something with my life.' God created us to have passion in our lives and He wants us to live a passionate life. In fact God wants us to be passionate about Him The disciples were not learned people. They didn't go to college or study the Scriptures, but they did spend time with the Master. So with us. We need to spend time with Him, we need an encounter with Jesus, so that the Holy Spirit might convict us towards love and compassion for the lost. 'Passion' aims to inspire, to challenge and to offer solid practical help on how all Christians can share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Reciprocities in the Nonfiction Novel

Product : Reciprocities in the Nonfiction Novel
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Nonfiction novels have usually been associated with the "new journalism" writers of the 1960s such as Tom Wolfe, Norman Mailer, and Truman Capote. Yet this form has long commanded a key position in the literary canon, as John Russell now reveals. Russell identifies eleven major works not usually thought of as nonfiction novels, such as Isak Dinesen's Out of Africa and E. E. Cummings's The Enormous Room, to create a new definition of the genre. He shows that journalistic writing is characterized by a reporter's proprietary stance, which undermines reciprocity with subjects, while true nonfiction novels feature greater reciprocity and also employ such techniques as circular narrative and bricolage. Reciprocities in the Nonfiction Novel contributes to ongoing explorations of literary forms and offers wise commentary on how writing about real life can become art.

Society, the Sacred and Scripture in Ancient Judaism: A Sociology of Knowledge

Product : Society, the Sacred and Scripture in Ancient Judaism: A Sociology of Knowledge
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This work explores the relationship between religion, social patterns, and the perception of the character of scripture in four modes of Ancient Judaism: (1) the Jerusalem community of the fifth to fourth centuries B.C.E. (ie, the Early Second Temple Period); (2) the Judaism of the Graeco-Roman Disapora down to the end of the fourth century of the Christian Era; (3) earliest rabbinic Judaism in the second century C.E> in the land of Israel; (4) Late Antique Talmudic Rabbinism, primarily inn Babylonia, down to the sixth century of the Christian Era. Lightstone attempts not only to describe these perceptions and relationships but also to account for them, to explore why scripture should be thus perceived. His imaginative approach to the challenging descriptive and theoretical tasks is influenced by literary and form-critical methods as well as by the methods and perspectives of social anthropology and sociology of the mind. This unique attempts at revising the perception of the character of scripture should arouse the interest of scholars and students of Ancient Judaism.

Rebuilding Communities in Refugee Settlements

Product : Rebuilding Communities in Refugee Settlements
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book gives a critical account of a complex and ambitious refugee-settlement program in support of 55,000 refugees who fled in 1993 from armed conflict in south Sudan into a remote and insecure region of north-west Uganda. In helping refugees to rebuild self-reliant, sustainable communities, Oxfam's vision was to treat them as people with their own capacities and dignity. This book relates how structures were established to ensure the representation of all groups, particularly the most vulnerable. It considers the questions of integration with the local host population; site-suitability and the impact of refugee settlements on their physical environment; the problems of donor fatigue; and the internal stresses created when a disaster-relief operation evolves into a community-development program in a still-turbulent context.

Undereducation in America: The Demography of High School Dropouts

Product : Undereducation in America: The Demography of High School Dropouts
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Who are the majority high school dropouts? They are neither the poor nor members of minority groups. Rather they are native-born white youth from homes in which only English is spoken and with incomes above the poverty level. However, minority and poor youth are more likely to be undereducated, and minority youth are more likely to be poor. Undereducation in America provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive examination of the high school dropout problem available today. It examines the numbers, rates, and characteristics of undereducated young people among white majority; African American; Hispanic; American Indian, Eskimo, and Aleut; Asian and Pacific Islander youth; and among non-Hispanic language minority whites. Having a non-English language background is not necessarily an educational risk factor of itself for dropping out of school. Dr. Waggoner finds that American schools are failing all youth, but she finds American Indian, Eskimo, and Aleut youth are the most likely of all native-born youth to be undereducated. Most of the much-noted disparity between the dropout rates of Hispanic youth and the rates of other groups is due to the limited education of many Hispanic immigrants, who constitute less than 30 percent of the entire group. The findings of Undereducation in America provide a guide for policy makers, school administrators, researchers, community groups, and others seeking solutions to the problems of educating school populations that, increasingly, are culturally and linguistically diverse.

Product : Pacific Asia 2022: Sketching Futures of a Region
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The profound effects of the 1997-98 Asian financial crisis encompass more than economic concerns.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In the summer of 1996, Ruth Ray, a gerontologist in her forties, befriended an eighty-two-year-old man suffering from Parkinson's. The two remained close until the end of his life, sharing stories and memories while building a deep relationship. Part memoir, part biography, "Endnotes" explores how people construct meaning through their interactions with others. With grace and wit, Ray situates her friend's past experiences and present relationships within the theories and literature of gerontology, providing a deeper understanding of autonomy at the end of life. She also delves into the complexities of sexuality and intimacy in old age, communication across disabilities and age groups, the disabling nature of nursing homes, and the trials of death and dying. Writing as both a woman and a gerontologist, Ray finds that the "quality of care" we provide for others requires not only an understanding of the relationships that have given a person's life meaning but also a willingness to accept and share deeply in the emotional process of physical and mental decline.

Was in Zwei Koffer Passt, Klosterjahre

Product : Was in Zwei Koffer Passt, Klosterjahre
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : One day Veronika Peters came to an unusual decision: to enters a convent. Motivated by the need to give her life a deeper meaning, of a life more than just the accumulation of possessions, she packed her bags and started on an adventure with an uncertain end. In this marvelous book, she tells, laconically and with a deep honesty, of the light and the dark sides of cloistered life - of the inner and outer conflicts that she had to overcome and of the limitations that are a part of a nun's life. She reports as well on the wonderful human encounters that she experienced there, the depth and beauty of religious rituals, and joy and inner peace. Twelve years later she packed her bags once again - to begin a completely new life in Berlin. "What Fits in Two Suitcases" is a very personal book with which the author, with equal amounts of humour and contemplation, shares her fascinating and highly unusual experiences. She gives readers a look behind the walls of an unknown world, while providing an impressive testimony of a young women's search for beauty and spiritual fulfillment. The search for meaning is a crucial theme in modern society. Veronika Peters' sympathetic and deeply human book will enthuse readers who are concerned with the question of having a fulfilled existence. "What Fits in Two Suitcases" is a wonderful reading pleasure as well for all who are interested in the unusual experiences of a courageous and clever woman. Press "Veronika Peters has written a very remarkable book about her nearly twelve years in a convent and her life afterwards. It is about being true to one's own life path - and about the happiness one should be allowed to miss out on just as little as this truestory." Brigitte "It is an astounding book, maintaining its tension just as you believe you can see the end." Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung "Veronika Peters' experience-packed novel is neither a paean nor a farewell to convent life. Instead it tells, without pathos, of the snares and also the luminosity of cloistered life and action based on Christian belief." 3sat Kulturzeit "The author ... provides insight into a hermetically sealed world. It is exciting, surprising, and at times amusing." Stern Author Veronika Peters, born in 1966, spent her childhood in Germany and Africa, where her father was a teacher. When she was fifteen she left home, became trained as an educator and worked in a psychiatric home for youth. She entered a convent in 1987. After nearly 12 years she left the order and moved to Berlin, where she worked on her photography and writing. "What Fits in Two Suitcases" is her first book.

Managing Water Conflict: Asia, Africa and the Middle East

Product : Managing Water Conflict: Asia, Africa and the Middle East
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Water is vital for the survival of human beings. The increasing demand for water from population growth, rapid industrialization, urbanization and expanding agriculture is so high that the present availability is not sufficient. This is particularly serious for the countries in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. With each passing day the gap between the needs of the growing population in these regions and the diminishing fresh water resources widens. Countries are meeting increasing water demand by building reservoirs and by diverting water from one area to another. When the water belongs to an international river system, these measures lead to riparian conflicts. However, water scarcity not only brings conflict to these regions, but also plays its part in building co-operation. In several international river basins in Asia, Africa and the Middle East, competing and disputing riparian countries are now moving towards a co-operative sharing arrangement. The signing of agreements on water sharing may be easy, but the real problem is how to keep these arrangements on track. Such agreements can positively contribute to peace and co-operation by addressing future needs, making sustainable decisions and being progressive in their management. This book looks at the these current stresses and likely future scenarios for this vitally important subject.

Viable Methods of Soil and Water Pollution Monitoring, Protection and Remediation

Product : Viable Methods of Soil and Water Pollution Monitoring, Protection and Remediation
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The objective of this book is to summarize and critically assess the current status, development trends and needs of three basic defensive elements that safeguard the quality and environmental safety of soil and water/sediments: early warning monitoring, protection and remediation measures, with particular regard to the viability of methods and technologies, i.e. easiness-to-use, reliability, cost-effectiveness, high efficiency and non-destructive character of remediation that is of particular importance considering the scale of application. The primary aim of the book is to contribute to the improving maintenance of ecosystems, and specifically to summarize and add to information on how best to protect our soils and aquifers, prevent migration and mobilization of pollutants and how to enhance their degradation and/or immobilization. Mechanism of action is considered the first priority, but optimization of technical construction/application details are of no lesser importance. In the permeable reactive barriers, and other preventive/remediation measures, a number of novel integrated physicochemical and biochemical methods are presented. The remediation solutions for soil pollution are focused on non-destructive methods such as phyto- and ecoremediation that would preserve soil properties during and after decontamination. The contributors to the book are internationally recognized experts, which present both state-of-the art and novel approaches in the above fields that makes the book unique with respect to the scope.

Product : Trade and Investment Relations Among the United States, Canatrade and Investment Relations Among the United States, Canatrade and
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The economic futures of the United States, Canada, and Japan are tightly linked by the extremely powerful trade network these nations share. Yet because of trade and domestic policies aimed at preserving economic and, some argue, cultural integrity, there has at times been considerable friction among the three nations. Much of the recent trade animus of the U.S. has been aimed Japan, the country with the largest trade surplus with the United States. Canada, the largest trade partner of the U.S., maintains fiscal policies which resemble those of Japan, but has not been the focus of similar concern. Since the actions of each nation reverberate throughout the network, a full and accurate understanding of these complex relations will be essential if ongoing trade negotiations, policymaking, and international relations are to be constructive. The papers in this volume were developed from a conference that addressed the need to discover which structural determinants and policies shape the close economic ties among these nations. Leading experts on trade and macroeconomics from all three countries examine disproportionate saving rates, exchange rate volatility, varying industrial policies and levels of financial innovation, the effects of present tax policies and proposed reforms, and the dynamism of major Pacific nations and the leadership role Japan may play in U.S. relations with that region. Several important conclusions are reached by the contributors. They assert that Japan's trade barriers are relatively low overall and are comparable to those maintained by the United States and Canada, and that divergent fiscal policies have been the major source of macroeconomic imbalances between the United States and other major countries in the 1980s. They also conclude that current trade imbalances may persist for some time. The analyses offered here are likely to prove influential in future policymaking and will be of interest to a wide audience, including academic economists, government officials, and students of theoretical and policy issues of international trade, investment, and finance.

The Meaning of Video Games: Gaming and Textual Strategies

Product : The Meaning of Video Games: Gaming and Textual Strategies
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Meaning of Video Games takes a textual studies approach to an increasingly important form of expression in today's culture. It begins by assuming that video games are meaningful-not just as sociological or economic or cultural evidence, but in their own right, as cultural expressions worthy of scholarly attention. In this way, this book makes a contribution to the study of video games, but it also aims to enrich textual studies. Early video game studies scholars were quick to point out that a game should never be reduced to merely its story or narrative content and they rightly insist on the importance of studying games as games. But here Steven E. Jones demonstrates that textual studies-which grows historically out of ancient questions of textual recension, multiple versions, production, reproduction, and reception-can fruitfully be applied to the study of video games. Citing specific examples such as Myst and Lost, Katamari Damacy, Halo, Facade, Nintendo's Wii, and Will Wright's Spore, the book explores the ways in which textual studies concepts-authorial intention, textual variability and performance, the paratext, publishing history and the social text-can shed light on video games as more than formal systems. It treats video games as cultural forms of expression that are received as they are played, out in the world, where their meanings get made.

Frances Trollope and the Novel of Social Change

Product : Frances Trollope and the Novel of Social Change
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Victorian writer Frances Trollope has largely been relegated to a mere footnote in literary history as simply the mother of Anthony. Equally unfortunate is that, aside from her nonfiction work Domestic Manners of the Americans, her 34 novels have been out of print since the nineteenth century. She was, nonetheless, the most provocative female writer of the early Victorian period who used the novel to impel social change. She has been credited for writing the first anti-slavery novel that predates Uncle Tom's Cabin, along with a number of works that incited reform legislation regarding bastardy clauses, poor laws, and labor conditions. Expert contributors examine her life and writings, her social activism, and the impact of her works. The book includes discussions of her influence on Anthony Trollope, the rivalry between Frances Trollope and Charles Dickens, her belief in the power of female friendship, her ambivalence toward the ability of women to effect social change, her thoughts on Evangelicalism, her views on women and aging, and her innovative contribution to early crime fiction. Contributors argue for the value of reprinting her novels and travel books and point to her enduring literary legacy.

Product : Governments and Geographic Information
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Modern geographic information systems technology has transformed spatial data handling capabilities and made it necessary for governments to rethink their roles with respect to the supply and availability of geographic information.; The nature of the relationship between governments and geographic information is explored in this book from a number of different conceptual positions with reference to the experiences of Britain, the Netherlands, Austria and the United States and particularly with respect to the development of national geographic information strategies.; The book examines the role that can be played both directly through a variety of policy initiatives and also indirectly because of the extent to which they create the broader institutional context within which these are developed and implemented. The discussion is divided into three main parts. The first of these considers what is Special About Geographic Information And Evaluates The Notion Of geographic information from four different standpoints - as a resource, a commodity, an asset and an infrastructure.; The second part presents the findings from four case studies of national geographic information strategies, while the final section evaluates these experiences with a view to identifying what general lessons can be learnt from them.

The Geopolitics of Euro-Atlantic Integration

Product : The Geopolitics of Euro-Atlantic Integration
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : No set of international relations is as thoroughly analyzed, commented on, taken apart and critiqued as the ties between Europe and the United States. A period of post-Cold War integration has been buffeted by trade disputes, economic strife and differences in prosecuting the fight against global terrorism. Now for the first time there is an accessible and theory-based analysis of European foreign policies in the post-Cold War era. The authors argue that EU- and NATO-mediated geopolitics prevails in most of Europe, but that raw geopolitics tends to pop up at the fringes of this thoroughly institutionalized area. Moreover, the effects of past geopolitics persist in the collective memories of several states and compete with contemporary geopolitics in their policy formulations. Focusing on the post-Cold War era, The Geopolitics of Euro-Atlantic Integration includes analyses of the Benelux, Nordic and Baltic countries, Central and East European countries and those in Southern Europe. This geographical range was made possible through contributions by leading European scholars and area experts. The coherence of this edited collection is facilitated by constellation theory, a new geopolitical theory explaining European foreign policies in a comparative perspective. Scenarios for the future of Europe are formulated as well as perspectives for the constellation theory when applied to other parts of the world. Of interest to political scientists, observers, academics and students, this is an invaluable guide to post-Cold War European relations.

Description : Like much of the Deep South in the early Sixties, Lisa Tingle is fighting for change. Change for herself, that is. The reluctant peacekeeper between her sister, parents, and grandparents in their shabby house, she wants desperately to "Get Out" of Newitville, Mississippi, a town steeped in Civil War history, and move far away from the war at home. Lisa dreams of an urban life, filled with art, beauty and even a bit of sanity. She longs to put some distance between her and her parents, Sinatra-loving alcoholics trying to make a ring-a-ding life for themselves, and her grandparents, who blame alcohol on everything from communism to spider veins. Her older sister, Ava Gardner Tingle, believes the way to Get Out is to get married, then divorced, and repeat the process, again and again. When Lisa finally Gets Out, she realizes "you can't go home again," yet the family troubles won't stay behind. Instead, they phone-in long distance.

Ghana's Concert Party Theatre

Product : Ghana's Concert Party Theatre
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Ghana's Concert Party Theatre Catherine M. Cole An engaging history of Ghana's enormously popular concert party theatre. ..". succeeds in conveying the exciting and fascinating character of the concert party genre, as well as showing clearly how this material can be used to rethink a number of contemporary theoretical themes and issues." -- Karin Barber Under colonial rule, the first concert party practitioners brought their comic variety shows to audiences throughout what was then the British Gold Coast colony. As social and political circumstances shifted through the colonial period and early years of Ghanaian independence, concert party actors demonstrated a remarkable responsiveness to changing social roles and volatile political situations as they continued to stage this extremely popular form of entertainment. Drawing on her participation as an actress in concert party performances, oral histories of performers, and archival research, Catherine M. Cole traces the history and development of Ghana's concert party tradition. She shows how concert parties combined an eclectic array of cultural influences, adapting characters and songs from American movies, popular British ballads, and local story-telling traditions into a spirited blend of comedy and social commentary. Actors in blackface, inspired by Al Jolson, and female impersonators dramatized the aspirations, experiences, and frustrations of their audiences. Cole's extensive and lively look into Ghana's concert party provides a unique perspective on the complex experience of British colonial domination, the postcolonial quest for national identity, and the dynamic processes of cultural appropriation and social change. This book will be essential reading for scholars and students of African performance, theatre, and popular culture. Catherine M. Cole is Assistant Professor in the Department of Dramatic Art at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She has published numerous articles on African theatre and has collaborated with filmmaker Kwame Braun on "passing girl; riverside," a video essay on the ethical dilemmas of visual anthropology.

Groupware in the 21st Century: Computer Supported Cooperative Working Toward the Millennium

Product : Groupware in the 21st Century: Computer Supported Cooperative Working Toward the Millennium
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : As the 21st century nears, networked computing is becoming the essence of computing itself. Alternative phrases abound--collaborative work, computer supported cooperative work, simultaneous/concurrent engineering, multimedia real-time interactive work--but the neatest, shortest, and simplest catch-all term was coined in 1978: groupware. The two visionaries who coined the term, Peter and Trudy Johnson-Lenz, are among the 42 expert contributors to Groupware in the 21st Century. Other contributors to the volume include Microsoft's Bill Gates, professors Jay Nunamaker and Tom Malone, and management author Robert Heller. As with most technological sea-changes, the groupware revolution is having its impact first on business, where enhanced interaction between an organization's members, strategic allies, suppliers, and customers can help ensure that it remains dynamic and competitive. Anyone who wants to know about the future of information technology and group processes will want to read this book which brings perspective and clarity to these new technologies.

Product : Power, Politics & Propaganda: Observations of a Curious Contrarian
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This collection of thought-provoking essays is a reminder about the importance of individual liberty in a world moving toward more systems of government putting the group first. O'Connell explores how power, politics and propaganda lead to supremacy of the collective over the free individual. The danger, he contends, is that despite allegedly good intentions the elite collectivists and secularists are apt to consider those who believe in God as candidates for the Flat Earth Society. O'Connell's key philosophy: "Individual liberty is our birthright...Respect for life is the key to both individual liberty and group harmony." He says a Divine Plan is at work in the destinies of individuals and nations. Unimpressed with mob dynamics, he stresses individual liberty.

Product : Pension Systems, Demographic Change, and the Stock Market
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Due to the accelerating demographic change of the population the reform of the existing pension systems constitutes one of the greatest political challenges in most European countries. A theoretical discussion of different pension reforms must incorporate not only the demographic aspect but also the role of financial market risk and the impact on production and employment. These notes develop a dynamic macroeconomic model which incorporates these aspects within a flexible theoretical framework. The proposed approach provides a large scale population model and features a sound description of the production side as well as of the financial side of the economy and their interactions with the pension system. Within this framework various adjustment policies of the pension system are studied under different population scenarios. The consequences for the economy and the welfare of consumers are analyzed and compared.

Zygmunt Zawirski: His Life and Work: With Selected Writings on Time, Logic & the Methodology of Science

Product : Zygmunt Zawirski: His Life and Work: With Selected Writings on Time, Logic & the Methodology of Science
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Zygmunt Zawirski (1882--1948) -- one of the most eminent and original Polish philosophers -- belonged to the Lwow--Warsaw School (LWS) which left an indelible trace in logic, semiotics and philosophy of science. LSW was founded in 1895 by K. Twardowski, a disciple of Brentano, in the spirit of clarity, realism and analytic philosophy. LWS was more than 25 years older than the Vienna Circle (Ve. This belies, inter alia, the not infrequently repeated statement that LWS was one of the many centers initiated by VC. The achievements of LWS in logic are well recognized, while those relating to philosophy of science are almost unknown. It is in order to fill this gap that some fragments of Zawirski's papers are presented, dealing mainly with causality, determinism, indeterminism and philosophical implications of relativity and quantum mechanics. Hismagnum opus L'Evolution de la notion du temps' (Eugenio Rignano Prize, 1933) is devoted to time. It is one of the best books written on this subject, and by no means an obsolescent one. Zawirski took into account all the issues which are at present widely discussed. The real value of these achievements can be understood better today than by his contemporaries. For all those interested in philosophy of science and philosophy, and history of ideas.

While DNA is normally thought of as a straight double helix, it can be distorted by bending and twisting. These alterations are critical to a number of cellular processes, including transcription, recombination, and the repair of DNA damage. An interesting group of proteins has the important role of recognizing and manipulating DNA structure. This book draws together findings from different areas in molecular biology to elucidate the importance of DNA structure in the interactions between proteins and DNA, and to generate a new perspective on these vital processes. The book is intended for researchers and graduate students in molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics, and structural biology.

September 12: Community and Neighborhood Recovery at Ground Zero

Product : September 12: Community and Neighborhood Recovery at Ground Zero
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The collapse of the World Trade Center shattered windows across the street in Battery Park City, throwing the neighborhood into darkness and smothering homes in debris. Residents fled. In the months and years after they returned, they worked to restore their community. Until September 11, Battery Park City had been a secluded, wealthy enclave just west Wall Street, one with all the opulence of the surrounding corporate headquarters yet with a gated, suburban feel. After the towers fell it became the most visible neighborhood in New York. This ethnography of an elite planned community near the heart of New York City's financial district examines both the struggles and shortcomings of one of the city's wealthiest neighborhoods. In doing so, September 12 discovers the vibrant exclusivity that makes Battery Park City an unmatched place to live for the few who can gain entry. Focusing on both the global forces that shape local landscapes and the exclusion that segregates American urban development, Smithsimon shows the tensions at work as the neighborhood's residents mobilized to influence reconstruction plans. September 12 reveals previously unseen conflicts over the redevelopment of Lower Manhattan, providing a new understanding of the ongoing, reciprocal relationship between social conflicts and the spaces they both inhabit and create.

Dr Steven Dunbar, working for the Sci-Med Inspectorate, is sent to investigate. A few of the research animals have also gone missing, and top-level authorities are strangely obsessed with hunting down and killing the purportedly harmless animals. Was the attack really the work of activists or is something more sinister going on? Alone in a race against unspeakable tragedy, the ex-Special Forces medic must imagine the unthinkable - and all he knows is that, when the storm breaks, it may already be too late...

The Rock Where We Stand

Product : The Rock Where We Stand
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Bay St. George in western Newfoundland is a region characterized by a boom and bust economy and shaped by the establishment of the Earnest Harmon American Airforce Base. This ethnography explores how women at the Bay St. George Women's Council deal specifically with the issues of single motherhood, child sexual abuse, and domestic violence, and examines the interplay of feminist and Newfoundland identification among these individuals. Drawing on 14 months of participant observation and interviews with women at the Council, George provides a much needed, specifically Canadian contribution to ethno-cultural studies, grass-roots activism, and feminist studies. The research successfully situates the particular concerns and political activism of these women in this rural region of Canada within the larger context of economic restructuring and neoliberal economic and social policies that continue to marginalize women in Canada and around the world. This important study continues the work of feminist ethnographies by such scholars as: Abu-Lughod, Behar, Cole, DiLeonardo, Ginsburg, and Lowenhaupt-Tsing. Avoiding the all too common pitfall of folkorization in rural studies, The Rock Where We Stand represents an innovative and experimental contribution to the field.

Song of the Skylark I

Product : Song of the Skylark I
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book is a thematic and comparative study of the mystical traditions of Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Kabbalah, Christian mysticism, and Sufism. The guiding assumptions of this study are: just as there are stages of human development, so there are corresponding stages of religion; transpersonal stages of religion correspond to transpersonal stages of human development; just as no account of human nature can be completed without considering the transperson, so no account of religion can be complete without delineating its transpersonal stages. The personal and transpersonal may be called, respectively, conventional and experiential religion. Each addresses different stages of human development.

Amazing Things Animals Do

Product : Amazing Things Animals Do
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "An appealing introduction to the animal kingdom." You won't believe the amazing things that animals do -- how they communicate, how they find food, how they take care of their families. Amazing Things Animals Do is jam-packed with astounding animal facts designed to introduce children to the fascinating wonders of animal behavior. It is a compilation of all four titles from the series of the same name: "Little Wonders: Animal Babies and Their Families," "Time to Eat: Animals Who Hide and Save Their Food," "Side by Side: Animals Who Help Each Other," and "Wild Talk: How Animals Talk to Each Other." Did you know? Some tiny finches eat their dinners off the backs of giant Galapagos tortoises? An elephant's low rumble can travel right across the African plains? Sea otters wrap their babies in seaweed so they won't float away in the water? American alligator babies travel in their mothers' huge mouths? Cheerful watercolor artwork and a picture book format make this title especially appealing for young children and a wonderful resource for learning about the animal world for the first time. A "Who's Who" guide at the end of the book provides additional details about each species and its habitat, encouraging additional questioning and research for the older child.
